Frankfort, KY – State audits have been ordered for the Kentucky Association of Counties and the Kentucky League of Cities. State Auditor Crit Luallen says she's alarmed at media reports of alleged profligate spending by top officials at the publicly funded, non-profit agencies.

Dawson Springs, KY – A former nursing assistant at a Dawson Springs nursing home has been indicted for using a cell phone to record video of a naked female. State officials cited Dawson Pointe earlier this year for improper cell phone use, but did not release details at the time.

She was fired from the facility on April 20, the day after she was arrested by Dawson Springs Police.
